vice president, joe biden, for your dedication, joe, to this issue, for bringing so many different voices to the table, because while reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm shouldn't be a divisive one. over the month since the tragedy in newtown, we've heard from so many, and obviously none have affected us more than the families of those gorgeous children and their teachers and guardians who were lost, and so we're grateful for all of you taking the time to be here and recognizing that we honor their memories in part by doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again. we also heard from unexpected people. in particular, i started getting a lot of letters from kids. four of them are here today. graham, julia, kenny and taja. they're pretty represented of some of the messages that i got. these are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart young people. henna, a third grader. you can go ahead and wave, henna. that's you. henna wrote, i feel terrible for the parents who lost their children. i love my country, and i want

's bad to leave congress out of the equation. the good thing is it appears that joe biden did solicit people from both sides of the aisle on this debate to come and have this discussion with him. i think one of the most important things that many americans agree with is that this should be a comprehensive approach. you may not agree with every tenet of what the president will talk about today or any of them, but at least it was a comprehensive approach and to hear that the nra is at least happy with some of the things involved and maybe other people who feel differently than the nra are happy with some of the things, i don't think you'll ever have a plan where every single person is going to be happy with it. so let's see what it is first before we judge it completely. in the meantime, one of the things that's causing big stir is the fact that the president is going to be surrounded when he makes this announcement by children from around the country who wrote the president letters in the wake of that tragedy. so that has become a big question today. we know that imagery in politics, s
